New York Row by Row Experience

Great information!Just a caution about your sewing machine needles⚠️. We are seeing quite a few machines coming in with problems caused by a budget brand of needles being sold at some department stores. These needles are made so poorly that they will actually cause your machine to not sew properly. To demonstrate - the needle on the left is a Schmetz brand needle size 80 and on the right is the department store needle size 70. This size needle should be finer than the Schmetz, and as you can see, not only is it thicker, but it’s also longer😱! Other needles in the same department-store-pack are made backwards or are bent. Consumers are purchasing these needles in good faith, and then spending hours trying to find the cause of their sewing machine problem, all the while certain that it can’t be their machine needle because it’s a brand-new pack😤. And the worst part about this is that newbies to sewing, who are keen to get involved in this hobby that we all love so much, think that the problems that they are experiencing are caused by them doing something wrong, and with a hit to their confidence, they just give up🙄. No matter if you have an enormous machine that you use every day, or a small one, that you get out every now and then, we recommend using brand-quality needles like Schmetz, that you can purchase from all good sewing stores.

So New York . . . what designs would you like to see? What is your favorite shape?For some shops coming up with a concept, designing, creating and making a pattern is very difficult, so we are asking you.....what types of rows and/or blocks would you like to see this year? What is the first thing you think of when you hear the phrase "taste the experience"?? Thanks for your input! ... See MoreSee Less

It should definitely be about the states specialties! I was very disappointed last year when the rows in no way reflected their location. I asked some stores what the row meant and they had no response. Not what this is about, if I’m gonna travel to a store, it should reflect the location!

Local products, producers and traditions.

Local products and traditions in taste.o

Love the different size blocks! Added a new element. Would have liked more long tall sally rows. Area foods, local favorite places to eat.

Not terribly excited about seeing food in rows. I would be excited over a black shadow of a farmer, farm equipment, old time farming in front of a sunrise/sunset background. I'd love to see beautiful herbs and botanicals. The progression of nature from seed, to seedling, to flower bud, to burgeoning fruit or vegetable. I could see a bookshelf quilt with rows of canned foods, crates of potatoes and onions, cookbooks. I'd love a whole quilt reminiscent of a 1950s kitchen. Black and white checkered tile, old fashioned baby blue stove, polka dot apron, sunny curtains, retro fridge.

Cupcakes !

I missed all the rows being strips. I loved the challenge of being creative within that format. Odd shaped blocks meant nothing worked and I didn’t do a quilt.

I will not quilt with a mouse, I draw the line there, and a snake too. Not my favorites.

I quilt whatever I can. I quilt under a fan.
